    I work in a ltcf, most days I have a love hate

    relationship with it. If it weren't for some of my coworkers it wouldn't be so bad, on the other hand when I work with my team its great. I work exclusively o. the Alzheimer's unit, and love my residents. I really do feel like they are my family. I have become very attached to a...

    I am a nurses aid & I love my patients!
